With the renewed interest in Gin as a drink, what better way to spend a November day than visiting the place some of ‘the best stuff’ is made!

After enjoying a tour of the distillery and seeing how it’s made in what is quite a fascinating process, we will be given a complimentary drink and no doubt encouraged to visit the giftshop afterwards.

FAQs

Am I only able to now book online for events / excursions with Coolings?

Our online ticket system is by far the easiest way for the majority of our customers to make a booking. However we are still happy to receive phone booking at Coolings Garden Centre on 01959 532269 (payment can be made preferably by credit / debit card over the phone / cheque in the post).

Alternatively you may still visit Coolings Garden Centre in person and make a booking at our customer service desk located in the main shop. If making a booking in person at Coolings you can pay by credit / debit card, cheque or cash.

If paying by cheque for any event / excursion this is only available up until 10 days prior to the event / excursion taking place. If you are booking less than 10 days prior to the event payment must be made by one of the alternative methods.

 

I am have a Coolings Family Card, can I use it?

Coolings Family can be used for this excursion. To use your card please enter your card number into the 'Enter Promotional Code' box when selecting your tickets. This is the full 11 digit cardholder number.

 

What if I have some specific requirements that are not listed here?

Please contact Coolings Garden Centre on 01959 532269 or alternatively email us on events@coolings.co.uk to discuss your requirements and as always we will do our best to accomodate them.

 

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please contact Coolings Garden Centre on 01959 532269 or alternatively email us on events@coolings.co.uk

 

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

You may transfer your ticket to someone else, but we must receive confirmation of this 48 hours before the event / excursion. For some holidays you may not be able to transfer your booking with less than 7 days notice.

 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes a printed ticket must be brought to the event. Although our ticket provider 'Eventbrite' does offer electronic tickets mobile reception at Coolings is often limited so this may mean you are unable to recall your ticket on site. We do hold a record of all attendees to any event / excursion/ holiday, but if you do not have your ticket this will cause you some delays.

 

What if I wish to cancel?

Refunds on Events and one day Excursions can only be offered 14 days before the event/excursion.

 

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Tickets may be transferred with 48 hours notice or 7 days for some holidays but on the day of an event / excursion/ holidays ticket attendee/s should match our registration details.
